The Toshiba Satellite M60 model series uses three types of TFT active-matrix LCDs, all of which can encounter some of the same common problems.

Broken Display Adapter

If the image that appears on the screen is heavily zoomed in and distorted or resembles a psychedelic image, the monitor is probably fine and the problem lies with the display adaptor.

No Image

If the monitor doesn't turn on at all, it could be caused by faulty hardware or a disconnected wire. You can open the case around the monitor to check if the connection ports attached to the screen are firmly connected to the related wires.

Lines Running Across the Screen

If you are experiencing single-colour lines running across the monitor, you have a loose connection. This can be caused by the wear-and-tear of opening and closing the monitor. You can fix this problem by opening the monitor enclosure and reconnecting the monitor and motherboard connection wires. Bent pins in the connectors also can cause this problem.

Blank/Stuck Pixels

The M60 monitor may experience dead or stuck pixels. Blank pixels don't turn on, and stuck pixels don't change colours. The only way to fix dead pixels is to replace the monitor. Stuck pixels may fix themselves on their own.
